    Stupid yet simple question about position

    What exactly does position: relative mean? I've always used absolute...it seams that whenever i try position: relative I cannot actually place a DIV where I want it....

    Position: relative allows you to specify an offset from the position the element would normally appear at. That is, the position is calculated normally then the box is moved by the amount you specify using left/top etc. I must admit, I don't use it often either.

    For more information, see the specs:
